New Year resolutions are nice but we'd all be better off if we just decided to accomplish something TODAY instead of deciding what to do for the whole year. For example; Walk a half hour TODAY and then forget about it. Pass on the sweet roll TODAY and count that as an accomplishment.
Realize that decisions come in different sizes and shapes. The biggest decisions are usually pretty well thought out. Buying a car? That's a BIG decision! We always take time to make sure it fits our needs and budget before going ahead with a purchase. BIG decisions usually work out well. It's the LITTLE decisions that get us into trouble.
Put a cupcake in front of me and I'll quickly decide to take it. Why? because it's there. No thought, just reflex. We come face to face with many of those "LITTLE" decisions every day. What can we do? Try to recognize that bad LITTLE decisions add up! For example; a high credit card balance is probably the result of bad "LITTLE"decisions.
If you want to make a resolution to do simething different this year, commit to carefully considering all your LITTLE decisions. If you do that properly then next year you won't have to worry about "New Years Resolutions" because there will be nothing to resolve.
